Sri Lankan Military Intelligence expands eavesdropping unit

Saturday April 18, 2020

The Sri Lankan Military Intelligence is expanding its eavesdropping unit, sources in Colombo said.

 

Military Intelligence operatives sacked during Ranil Wickremesinghe's government have been drawn into the unit, the sources further added.

 

The current climate of insecurity prevailing in the country as a result of the Covid-19 pandemics is being used as a pretext for expanding the unit.
